The incident happened shortly after 9pm on 2 September, when a man boarded the train and sat diagonally across from a woman in her early twenties.

After attempting to start a conversation with her several times, he leant over and grabbed her, before kissing her without permission.

This left the victim feeling threatened and uncomfortable.
